Summer is a great time for pool parties and dream vacations, but those aren’t the only reasons to smile as you head into the season. After completing your orthodontic treatment, you have the straight teeth you’ve always wanted. Now is the perfect time to put the final touch on your picture-perfect smile. Your cosmetic dentist can fix your aesthetic concerns using 3 popular procedures for summer.
1. Teeth Whitening
If you used traditional metal braces, you might notice little white squares on your teeth if you didn’t practice the best oral hygiene habits during your treatment. Thankfully, you don’t need to live with the blemishes. A professional whitening treatment will restore a consistent tooth color while also getting your smile several shades brighter. You can achieve the results you want after a single appointment using an in-office solution. If you prefer to whiten your smile while sitting by the pool, your dentist can give you a take-home kit. It will contain everything you need to achieve in-office results over the next 2 weeks.
2. Porcelain Veneers
If your alignment issues were too severe for porcelain veneers in the past, you should be a candidate for them now. While your braces may have closed gaps, rotated your teeth, and fixed other alignment issues, they couldn’t resolve other imperfections like discoloration, chips, or cracks. You don’t need to wait any longer for your dream smile. Now that your teeth are in their best positions, your cosmetic dentist can attach the thin shells to their front surfaces. They’ll instantly improve the color, size, and shape of your teeth to enjoy the radiant smile you deserve.
If traditional braces weren’t right for you, it isn’t too late to get a straight, healthy smile. As an alternative to brackets and wires, clear aligners are worn over your teeth to slowly move them. The FDA-approved treatment is virtually undetectable while providing the same results as metal braces. You’ll need to commit to wearing the aligners for at least 22 hours per day. After about one week, you’ll switch to the next aligner in the series. The number of aligners needed will be determined by the complexity of your bite and alignment concerns. Most patients are finished in 12 to 18 months. Since the aligners are removable, you can still enjoy your favorite summer foods and cool treats. Be sure to remove your aligners when eating or drinking anything except water.
